Prior to any provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must make use of the contact details referred to in subparagraph 3. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, if there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what would be the consequence of the failure to provide the personal data.
